Numerous factors can impact an investment's return, many of which are beyond an investor's control – the recent gyrations in the market are a stark reminder of this fact. However, one factor that an investor has direct control over in these challenging times is the management fees that they pay. Fees are an important consideration in the wealth building process (especially in a lower-return environment) as they reduce the amount of capital that is put to work for investors.

At RBC Dominion Securities, one of our core values (since the firm started in 1901) has been to charge a fair price for our investment services. We strongly believe our commitment to low fees is in the best interest of our clients.
